New Jersey regulators have received five additional applications from gambling companies seeking to start offering sports betting before football season starts in September.

David Rebuck, director of the state Division of Gaming Enforcement, tells The Associated Press that his agency received two new applications from brick-and-mortar facilities, and three applications for mobile sports betting.

He would not identify the applicants, saying it's up to the companies to identify themselves.

None of the potential licensees, including casinos, racetracks or former tracks immediately responded to requests for comment Monday.

So far, two casinos, the Borgata and Ocean Resort, and two horse tracks, Monmouth Park and the Meadowlands, offer sports betting in New Jersey.

Rebuck says the division has not heard from three potential applicants.
